Nine banks that have fallen short on the Fed's stress tests
Following are notable cases where banks were tripped up by the Fed's stress tests either by flunking the numbers (or quantitative) part of the test or raising red flags on a qualitative basis.
Deutsche Bank & Santander
Deutsche Bank Trust Corporation — a subsidiary of the German megabank — and Santander Holdings USA have each received qualitative objections to their capital plans in 2015 and 2016 as part of the Comprehensive Capital Analysis and Review stress tests. While the Fed said last year that the firms have made progress, they cited deficiencies in both risk management and stress testing processes.
